At about 4:15 p.m. ET, the AP wire reported that a federal district judge had declared Utah’s ban on gay marriage to be unconstitutional. Within an hour, one gay couple reported on Twitter that they had gotten married.

Seth Anderson, whose Twitter profile says he lives in Salt Lake City, tweeted the below photo of he and his husband holding up their new marriage license.

About 15 minutes later, the AP confirmed that the Salt Lake City Clerk’s office had begun issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
